Just a few weeks until my 3rd and final 60 mile journey begins. I have trained all summer, the blisters have healed, the callusses are thick...I am ready to go! There will be lots of laughs, lots of tears, and many morea ches, pains, and blisters. However, that is nothing compared to what cancer patients and survivors go through, fighting this awful disease.
BE BOLD. BE FEARLESS. BE MORE THAN PINK®.
A breast cancer diagnosis—whether it’s your own or someone you love—can leave you feeling helpless. Imagine if there were a way to fight back—to do something that can make an impact. There is. It’s called the Susan G. Komen 3-Day®.
It’s a three-day, 60-mile walk that’s making a real difference in the fight against breast cancer. In 2016, Susan G. Komen® announced a Bold Goal—to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50% in the U.S. by 2026. That’s why we walk, and why we raise money—to make that goal a reality.
Pink is more than just a color; it represents the impact that each person is making in the fight against breast cancer. This impact makes you More Than Pink. Over the past 14 years and 156 events, the money we’ve raised has been used to save lives, support community programs, and make huge strides in breast cancer research.
Please consider making a tax deductible donation, in any amount. If you can't afford to give as much as you'd like all at once, you can spread it out over four months using the payment plan option, if you donate online at The3Day.org.
I will be carrying ribbons of loved ones on my backpack not only for those fighting or having lost their fight with breast cancer, but also all other forms of cancer. I have several names to add this year and if you have someone you would like for me to carry a ribbon for please send me their name and the form of cancer and I will add it to my backpack.
This is very important to me, and that’s why I’m asking for your help. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
**if your company matches donations, it is very important that you designate “Susan G. Komen 3-Day®" as the recipient of the matching gift (with the recipient address of 55 East Jackson Blvd, Suite 1010, Chicago, IL 60604), NOT “Susan G. Komen®” generally or any Komen event or affiliate other than the Komen 3-Day event. (You may see a listing for the 3-Day with our old address of 820 W. Jackson Blvd., It is OK to select that option.)**
